You’re the Best for GDP026

Over at the Global Design Project this week, the talented Teneale Williams has challenged us with a sketch:


I love Teneale’s sketches (thanks Teneale!).  They’re always stylish and mostly CAS, although you can make it your own.  I usually stay pretty true to them though, and today’s card is pretty close; I’ve only substituted the heart for another image.  Here’s my card for this weeks Global Design Project challenge:


When I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to incorporate a technique I haven’t used in a while – kissing.  I’ve used the lovely leaf/swirl image from the I Think You’re Great stamp set in Pink Pirouette and “kissed” it to a solid flower stamp image from the Flower Patch stamp set inked with Bermuda Bay.  I love the effect you get with this technique.


The sentiment is from the Sunburst Saying stamp set, white heat embossed on Basic Black.  The striped DSP from the Neutrals Collection DSP Stack frames the image and completes the card.


I stamped the same solid flower image inside the card in Pink Pirouette.  I think I’m getting better at the CAS thing!

UPDATE: I’m excited to tell you that this card was a GDP challenge winner! I’m so honoured to be selected by my peers. Thank you to the fabulous Design Team who keep the challenges coming each week, and a huge thank you to all who participate each week, without which the GDP would not exist.
